Filling up your car in Sweden

Expensive yes but far from the most expensive and on par with several other countries in Europe. 

  • The price for a gallon of gas in Sweden on May 20 was $6.61 per gallon
  • Despite several increases of gas prices in Sweden in 2019, they are not the most expensive in the world. The price for a gallon of gas in Sweden on May 20 was $6.61 per gallon, or $1.74 per liter—the common measurement in Europe and Asia.

  • The average price for a gallon of gas in the U.S. on the same day was $3.19, or 84¢ per liter. Hong Kong is the most expensive at $8.43 per gallon ($2.22 per liter), followed by Iceland, Norway, Monaco and Denmark at approximately $7.44 per gallon ($1.96 per liter). Sweden ranks 15th among the most expensive, placing it at approximately the same level as Finland, France, Holland, Greece and Italy.

  • The difference between the most expensive and the cheapest gas price is huge: Venezuela, even in its current country crisis, managed to keep the gas price down to a super low 8¢ per gallon (1¢ per liter)—no other country has it so low. After Venezuela is Sudan with 53¢ a gallon and then Iran at $1.10.
